2014 Texas: Red Horse Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Red Horse Racing at Texas Motor Speedway

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams were faced with sweltering heat and humidity when they arrived in Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday. Germán Quiroga paced the field in final practice, turning in the fastest lap time around Texas Motor Speedway. Knockout qualifying commenced early Friday evening, with Timothy Peters securing the 15th starting position in the second round. Quiroga advanced to the third round and logged the eighth-fastest lap. When the green-flag dropped for the WinStar World Casino and Resort 400, both drivers were faced with loose-handling Toyota Tundras. Bad luck struck Red Horse Racing on lap 54 when the engine expired on the No. 77 NET10 Wireless machine, and the No. 17 Tundra slid on the oil and made hard contact with the outside wall, ending the night early for both teams.

Disappointing Night for Germán Quiroga at Texas Motor Speedway

Germán Quiroga came home with a disappointing 23rd-place finish after an engine failure on lap 54 ended his night early at Texas Motor Speedway. The Mexico City native was fast in both practice sessions on Thursday evening, finishing eighth in the first and leading the final practice of the day. He advanced to the final round of qualifying and earned an eighth-place starting position for the No. 77 NET10 Wireless team. Shortly after taking the green flag he told his crew chief, Butch Hylton, that the Toyota Tundra was a bit too loose. Quiroga brought the blue and white Toyota Tundra down pit road where the team gave him four fresh tires, fuel and made a track bar adjustment. Once he was back on the race track he reported to the team that the changes significantly improved the handling and he began to work his way through the pack. Quiroga was running in the 12th position when the engine failure occurred and was scored in 23rd when the checkered flag was displayed, ending his impressive five-race, top-10 finish streak for the 2014 season.

Germán Quiroga Quote:
"What a tough night for my team. We came to Texas [Motor Speedway] with such high hopes after finishing so well here last year, and to end the night like we did is just heartbreaking. Unfortunately, it was a situation that was out of our control, but we'll work hard and be ready to race next week at Gateway [Motorsports Park]. I can't thank NET10 Wireless, OtterBox, Toyota and the entire Red Horse Racing organization enough for all of their hard work and support."

Bad Luck Relegates Timothy Peters to 24th-Place Finish at Texas Motor Speedway

As the sun set over Texas Motor Speedway, Timothy Peters and the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra team took the green flag from the 15th position to start the WinStar World Casino and Resort 400. Six laps into the 167-lap event, the right rear tire on the red and white machine suddenly blew, requiring Peters to come to pit road under green-flag conditions. The Red Horse Racing team quickly changed right-side tires on the No. 17 Toyota Tundra, but the untimely pit stop cost them valuable track position. Two laps down to the leader, Peters reported that he was battling a loose-handling truck. The Marcus Richmond-led team made chassis adjustments during scheduled, yellow-flag pit stops on laps 37 and 47 that greatly improved the balance. Peters was turning fast laps around the 1.5-mile speedway when his teammate's engine expired on lap 54. Unable to avoid the oil on the track's surface, the No. 17 Toyota Tundra slid up the track and made hard contact with the outside wall. The damage was too severe to continue, ending their night early and relegating the championship contender to a 24th-place finish.

Timothy Peters Quote:
"Well, this wasn't how we expected the night to go. It's a shame that we blew the tire and wound up back in traffic and two laps down [to the leader]. Our No. 17 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra started the race on the loose side, but the changes that the team made helped. We were really fast after that. Red Horse Racing just had rotten luck tonight. Germán (Quiroga)'s motor blew and we had nowhere to go. I hit oil on the track and at that point, I was just along for the ride. We'll head to Gateway (Motorsports Park) next weekend and make up some of the ground that we lost tonight."


Next week the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to Gateway Motorsports Park for the first time since 2010. The seventh race of the 2014 season is scheduled to be televised live on FOX Sports 1 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The Drivin' for Linemen 200 will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.
